Localization Update: Right-To-Left Text and 9 New Translations

At long last the wait for Right-To-Left text in IntenseDebate is over!  We’re also stoked to introduce 9 new translations for your comment section. Without further ado, here are our new languages and the awesome folks who translated them:

Hats off to all of our volunteers for their hard work, and many thanks to Yoav and Beau for their work on RTL – it was a major undertaking and we couldn’t have done it without them.

IntenseDebate is now available in 33 languages that are available in your account at http://intensedebate.com/edit-site-account:

Arabic Dutch German Malay Russian Turkish
Bulgarian English Hebrew Norwegian Bokmål Slovak Ukrainian
Catalan Estonian Indonesian Polish Slovene Vietnamese
Croatian Filipino Italian Portuguese (BR) Spanish (LA)
Czech Finnish Japanese Portuguese (PT) Spanish (ES)
Danish French Lithuanian Romanian Swedish

We also have 18 other translations that are nearly ready for prime-time, but we need your help with reviewing them. If you’re interested please send me a note at labs@intensedebate.com.

Afrikaans Chinese Hindi Korean Maltese Swahili
Albanian Galician Hungarian Latvian Persian (Farsi) Tagalog
Belarusian Greek Icelandic Macedonian Serbian Thai
